I Want Drugs!
#1
Drugs to Help You Keep Awake

I would like to know what people get prescribed in the states and are they available to buy privately, over here my doc says there are no drugs like this but now and again someone mentions a drug that keeps them awake? I know of friends that could quite easily get the illegal kind but thats one road I refuse to walk down no matter how bad I get. My problem is take away the fags and Im on my knees with fatigue (Will have to stop saying fags lol) Any info will be gratefully excepted

Thanks

DC

These are the only ones I know of, but I've never taken them:
Nuvigil/Provigil
On top of that we quit smoking (fags Smile ) last year and recently due to some of my meds I can no longer tolerate coffee. I yawn and walk around a lot!
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

Have you ever talked to a homeopath? I know there's a lot of them in the UK.

In the US I have been prescribed Nuvigil and provigil and once, adderal. All prescribed by a physician and obtained from a regulated pharmacy. There are other CNS stimulants. Is there such a thing as a formulary available to you- it lists all drugs by mode of action.

We used to call them uppers, or speed. Dexadrine, benzadrine, etc.

Caffeine!

Any diet pill, or decongestant.
